The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Enable the pin.conf entry

     - fm_bill purchase_fees_backcharge 1

2. Jan 1st 2014: Purchase a product with deferred purchase fees by setting the purchase_start_t equal to actg_next_t (= Feb 1st 2014). Any default product with purchase fee works for this.
3. Move the PVT to Feb 1st 2014.
4. Execute pin_bill_day
5. Purchase fees are getting charged in the next cycle bill (Mar 1st bill) instead of current cycle (Feb 1st bill).

During billing, deferred purchase fees are not considered for the current cycle when the purchase_start_t is equal to actg_next_t.

Log file shows:

Deferred purchased fees are billed for current cycle.
